Amidst reports that Warner Bros. is still reluctant to green light the next two films in Zack Snyder’s Justice League trilogy despite the huge success of the Snyder Cut, fans have once again taken matters into their own hands.
After all, it’s no overstatement to suggest that the director deliberately planted a lot of seeds in his 4-hour extended version to tease what’s to come in potential future installments. The scenes concerning Darkseid and his minions, as well as the famous Knightmare sequence at the end, all herald what could’ve been had Snyder been given the chance to fully realize his vision beyond the first Justice League.
As you’d expect, then, a lot of folks are jumping on the bandwagon to see this through to its conclusion. Currently, #RestoreTheSnyderVerse campaigns are engulfing the internet, and there’s already a petition that asks the industry mogul to keep the 300 director around. The appeal, posted on Change.org, has now passed its first milestone of 15,000 signatures and is slowly but surely closing in on its next goal of 25,000. In fact, at this rate, it could even be there by next week.
While history has proven time and again that these movements are of little consequence when it comes to decision making on the part of studio executives, Justice League seems to be an exception to the rule every time due to the community’s overwhelming support. As such, there’s legitimate hope that fans could once again influence the consensus. Besides, the flick has already managed to perform well beyond WB and HBO Max’s expectations, so it’s not much of a leap of faith to begin with anyway.
Tell us, though, would you be interested to see the next entry in the controversial film series? And do you think Snyder could imitate this success again with a sequel? Sound off below.
